alrighty so I watched it

Sunrise (David Koch does my head in ) . . .and Family First . . . Fiona Patten, god bless her soul . . . she came across as a rational, confident, thoughtful campaigner for civil liberties who actually looks at the issues and considers both sides of an argument. . . that other harpy . . . mamma mia, shut up, learn how to listen, learn how to debate and say something that makes sense . . . and stop with the freakin' billboard talk

Fiona Pattens' point about the internet just may well be what decides this election for me . . . so far the goalposts re health, public transport, infrastructure and education all seem alarmingly similar . . . and I really really don't like the idea of a 'blacklist' . . . and I really don't believe that this blacklist will tackle or get ride of any of the issues that the parties purport . . . anyhoooooooo . . . pass the iced vovo's bruce, all this political talk is making me tired

Hahahaha, Wendy is such a mole. First same sex marriage is off the table because it has nothing to do with civil liberties, but then religious orgs should have tax exempt status because "its a free society"??

She has no idea what the difference between substance and rhetoric is. That debate was a perfect example of the difference.

the current election campaign is abysmal, i like julia gillard as a person, but i hate labour , if she were leading the libs i would be stoked .
loved the way she handled Mark Latham, the other day , he was lucky security didn't take him out back and bust his arse for the way he was in her face .

the greens are looking the more attractive option at this stage.

this. although still not sure about the greens . . .who are their preferences going to? and I think for them to be really effective (cuz unless there is a minor modern day miracle I don't think anyone seriously expects them to win) they really have to make some smart choices with regards to their preferences?

I am so bored by this election it makes me feel a little ashamed . . . although I do get a little annoyed that Gillard is copping it for deposing the Ruddster . . . remind me again how Tony baby got the gig?

when people tell me they don't like Wil i always ask them if they've seen him live.

he's actually an incredibly intelligent, sensitive person, who says a lot of things that people find confronting.

C'mon guys, Sex Party, they are getting my Senate vote on August 21!!

Never really liked Anderson, Glasshouse was just a crap show, Grant and Hughes are horrid. Anderson is ok on Gruen, but pointless as anyone could host that show. I Remember sitting next to him drinking at a beer garden a few summers back. Doesn't seem so overbearing and loud around his closest acquaintances.

I'm gradually becoming less attracted to Aussie women for some reason, my eye is increasingly being drawn by sub-continental or middle-Eastern women. Don't know why... but It's just happening

I think I'll be joining you voting for the sex party also.

Cannot stand either "MisterRabbit" or The lady that sounds like she was a character from Kath & Kim.
